Starting tonight, PBS will air a new documentary about Secretary George Shultz, Turmoil & Triumph: The George Shultz Years. Shultz served in both the Nixon and Reagan administrations and now co-chairs the World Affairs Council’s Advisory Committee. In his many years of service, Secretary Shultz has taken on numerous challenges, most recently the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI). He spoke at the Council last month about the Initiative before a screening of The Nuclear Tipping Point.
